Enjoy the Ride- Interactive Anniversary Card

 Hello Everyone,

Anniversaries are really special, they symbolize the celebration of love, renewing the vows and most importantly growing older together.

I created this anniversary card for a friend who is celebrating her second anniversary, riding smooth..

Creating all elements

I stamped all the images from the the Lawn Fawn built for you two stamp set on the Neenah Solar White 180 GSM cardstock and colored the images using the copic markers. I then die cut the images using the coordinating dies.

I also die cut the clouds MFT dienamics from white cardstock 180 GSM and Vellum paper to create the clouds. And the grass from the MFT dienamics scene builder set. The grass die cut panel was then colored using the twisted citron and mowed lawn distress inks.

Interactive Mechansim

I used the Lawn Fawn pull tab die to create the PULL mechansim.

Assembling the Card

To assemble the card I created the background on a Neenah Solar White Cardstock 270 GSM which was prepped using Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides. Added some splatters from the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Titanium White Paint. I then adhered all the elements , white clouds on top of vellum clouds, mechanism and the green grass panels. And tadaa the card is ready. This whole panel was stuck on a card base measuring 11x 4.25 inches scored in half along the 11 inches.


To embellish the card I added the pink sequins on the card and added highlights on the colored images. Stamped the sentiments enjoy the ride from the same stamp set.

This card measures 4.25x 5.5 inches.

I hope you like the card. Please let me know in the comments below.

Rainbows make us happy even in the gloomiest of days. A quick die cutting card to send it to friends to let them know they are in the thoughts and they definitely add colors to our lives.

I die cut the second largest of the stiched rectangles from the MFT stitched recangle stackable die set and then die cut the Japanese Waves Die Cut in various rainbow colors from the American Crafts Colored Paper Set - Tropical.

I stuck them using the liquid adhesive and finished by adding the Hello Die cut from MFT dienamics in white Iris Paper.

Thanks a Bunch!!

 Hello there crafting friends!!

I have a very important and a significant information to share with you all. On 26 Feb 21, as a part of the nation's front line defence warriors , I have been vaccinated by the Covishield vaccine against Covid-19 indigenised by Serum Institute of India (SII). And do you know it has been included in the WHO's world covaccine program and has been exported to various other countries of the world.

It is a heavy dose for sure, I was under the influence of side effects for about 48 hours and gradually improving. But I think it is worth the shot!! And thats why this floral thank you card goes out to the medics of my Base who vaccinated me.. It is a herculean task for them , no less than 250 shots a day..

So, let's have a closer look at the card

So I started with stamping the multiple flowers from the Hero Florals Arum Lily Stampset on the watercolor paper using the Hero Arts Black Ink. I then colored them with the tropical colors as the spring is starting to set in. I then fussy cut them.

For the card base, I trimmed the Hero Hues Premium Cardstock Palm to 4.25x 11 inch and scored it half along the 11 inch side to make it a side folding card note. I started to build up the background on it by trimming in half the Hero Hues Sand Top Folded Card from the folded end and ran through my die cut machine for added interest on the edges. I then created a hole by using the Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies (#2) circle for an illusion that the Arum Lilies are growing through the whole. Once the die cutting was done, I passed it through the embossing folder from my stash however using Hero Arts Woodgrain Texture Fancy Die would give the same effect. 

I then adhered all my pre-fussy cut Arum Lilies all flowing towards the top left corner representing hope and life, like the natural flowers tend to grow in the direction of sunlight. This is very close to my heart as every vaccination is a life saved. So I wanted to represent the same. I adhered all the flowers using the 3D foam tape for dimension. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiments Thanks a Bunch from the Hero Florals Nasturtium Stamp Set on the Hero Arts Classic Vellum Layering Paper using Hero Arts  Lemon Yellow Mid Tone Shadow Ink and heat set with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.

I hope you are inspired by my Arum Lilies. Now it is your chance to create and win Hero Arts gift card for our Monthly Challenge - Florals. Happy Crafting !!!

Loads of Love

Love you Die Cut Card

Hello everyone,

What better way could there possibly be to let your special one know how much you love them... For me is by creating something for them and writing notes for them.

I created this floral die cut card by creating the background on an Iris white cardstock measuring 4.25x 5.5 inches. Stamped the floral background using the Simon says stamp floral background stamp set and water colored it.

I then took a white panel measuring 4x 5.25 and die cut the sentiments LOVE YOU XOXO from Lawn fawn stitched alphabets. And stuck the centres of Os back to the space.

This leaves the shadows of the flowers peeping in.
